How to Write Numbers from 0 to 10

Around to the left to find my hero,
Back to the top, I've made a zero.

Downward stroke, (My that's fun),
Now I've made the number one. 

Half a heart says, "I love you."
A line -- now I made the number two. 

Around the tree, around the tree,
Now I've made the number three. 

Down and across and down once more.
Now I've made the number four.

The hat, the back, the belly. It's a five.
Watch out! It might come alive.

Bend down low to pick up sticks.
Now I've made the number six.

Across the sky and down from heaven,
Now I've made the number seven.

Make an S and close the gate.
Now I've made the number eight.

An oval and a line,
Now I've made the number nine. 

One (1) egg (0) laid my hen.
Now I've made the number ten.

This video gives a song and poem for each of the numbers 0 to 9 to hep you remember the form and shape. This song reinforces number formation;

Number of Days in each month

Multiply by 9

When multiplying by 9, the digits of the answer always add up to nine.
Example: 1 × 9 = 9, 2 × 9 = 18 (1 + 8 = 9), 3 × 9 = 27 (2 + 7 = 9) and so on.

Divisor, Dividend and Quotient

In a division problem, the divisor is the number being divided into a number; the dividend is the number being divided. The quotient is the result or the answer.

For example 40 ÷ 8 = 5. 40 is the dividend; 8 is the divisor and 5 is the quotient.

dividend ÷ divisor = quotient.

The dividend is at the end.
The quotient is the result.
